Eastern Iceland is a bit different if you compare it with the other areas of the country. To me it appeared like in east Iceland you are not going to visit a lot of specific tourstic spots but more like the journey is the reward. It’s an amazing feel to drive along the fjords, exploring high waterfalls, enormous mountains and the sea right next to you.
Some things you really should visit:
- Seyðisfjörður – A small city with a beautiful architecture.
- Öxarárfoss – A great Waterfall next to Seyðisfjörður. It’s smaller than some other waterfalls in Iceland but a great opportunity for some photos!
- The Mountains in the Westfjords. Some look like volcanos where villains live in – It’s truly amazing and shows the rough side of Iceland very well
Since there are no real concrete spots I could tell you, just enjoy the impressions of this Area in the Gallery below.
